Max Armstrong reports on news from the American Farmland Trust about the continued lost of quality farmland. A new report from the group is focused on Western states facing high urbanization rates which is endangering farms. The Farmland Trust points to Maricopa County, Ariz., which includes Phoenix that’s growing quickly. There are three California counties – Riverside and San Bernardino are the two fastest growing counties losing farmland – Fresno is No. 3 on the list of top ag counties losing ground.
